Taking a screenshot on your Android device is something that only takes a few seconds. It’s a very useful yet essential feature that all Android devices are capable of doing. Thanks to those screenshots you can save whatever it is you have on your display, even if it is something someone sent you on Snapchat (tisk tisk).
You’ve probably read an endless amount of tutorials on how to take a screenshot on Android. But, you’ve probably spent more time than you’d like searching for the method that fits your particular device, right? With the next app, you will be able to take a screenshot by tapping on one floating button on your display.
How to Take a Partial Screenshot on Android
To take partial screenshots on Android, the first thing you need to do is install an app called Screenshot Crop & Share. The app doesn’t take very long to install, so you’ll be enjoying it in no time. When it does install, I would recommend that you enable the Floating Bubble option.
By having it floating on your display, the only thing that you will need to do to take a screenshot is tap on the camera icon. You can place it anywhere on your screen by sliding it, but if you ever want to get rid of just slide it to the bottom on your display towards the trash icon.
By tapping on the camera icon, you will the options to either take a full screenshot or a Partial screenshot, among others. If the last thing you want to see on your phone’s display is another floating icon, there’s another option.
Use Your Device’s Button Combinations
Every Android device has its own special way of taking screenshots through a series of button combinations. For example, on Samsung device’s you can quickly take screenshots by pressing the power and the home button at the same time.
With the app, you can also take a screenshot by using those button combinations, and when do, you will see five buttons appear to the right of your display.
The button that allows you to take a partial screenshot is the first option, with the pencil icon. Tap on the pencil icon button and then you’re going to see the screenshot box appear. To adjust the box to what you want to take a screenshot of, just tap and slide the circles on the edges.
When you’ve framed the content that you want, tap on the check mark at the bottom. After that, the app will blow it up in size. If you’re sure, that’s what you wanted to take a screenshot of, you can either choose to save it onto your device or share it through the apps you already have on your Android.
This is definitely a must have app on every Android device since it makes sharing and taking screenshots a whole lot easier. If you use the buttons combinations, you can only take full screenshots, but not partial ones.
If you would ever want to share a screenshot you took, you would have to open the gallery app, select the screenshots and then share them. Screenshot Crop & Share cuts the whole process sin half and saves you from unnecessary steps. What do you usually take screenshots for? Leave a comment and let me know.
